Petronilah's Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy cost efficient maize seeds and fertilizer for the coming harvesting season, as well as a solar light.

Petronilah's Group's story

Petronilah is a 33-year-old proud mother of 4 children. She is a group leader, often described as a very hardworking individual, and is representing her group of 9 farmers in Kakamega B (North) District. After joining One Acre Fund in 2018, Petronilah has noticed that she has gained alot of respect in her community.

Petronilah described her harvest as good last year, but believes she can have a better one this year by continuing to work with One Acre Fund. She is very excited to also be purchasing a solar light, apart from fertilizer and maize, because she will now be able to have light during dark hours for her children to be able to study. With the profits from this season’s harvest, she plans to send her children to school.

With this loan, Petronilah’s Group will be able to plant a total of 4.25 acres of land and purchase a total of 4 solar lights.
